Cuban Peach cocktail with mint garnish

If you are a peach lover, the Cuban Peach cocktail is a great way to use them during peak season when they are at their juiciest. While fresh peaches will give the best flavor, you can also use frozen peaches when they are out of season. Just make sure the frozen peaches are fully defrosted before muddling them.
